Broadcom modulation, coding technology chosen for EchoStar DISH receivers

EchoStar Communications will use Broadcom's 8PSK (phase shift keying) technology across EchoStar's newest line of DISH Network satellite TV receivers and Dish Player-DVR products.

Broadcom's 8PSK turbo code is an advanced modulation and coding technology that increases information throughput by 35 percent in a given radio frequency link with no additional power requirements.

This capability lets EchoStar's DISH Network provide more programming services to subscribers using current dish antennas. With the help of Broadcom turbo code technology in DISH Network's new line of satellite set-top boxes, DISH Network hopes to expand the wide variety of available video and audio programming to include local stations for additional geographic areas, international programming and bandwidth-hungry high-definition TV programming.
